This study was conducted on nine adult donkeys from both sexes to determine the ideal dose and efficiency of Xylazine/Novocain mixture for inducing a good and safe epidural analgesia. This mixture was injected between the first and second coccygeal vertebrae. The results indicated that the efficiency of Xylazine 2% at a dose 0.8 mg /kg.BW mixed with Novocain 2% at the dose 0.1ml/kg.BW induced good safe epidural analgesia in donkeys.
